About Processwork:  

“Process Work is so powerful. Conflict Facilitation as opposed to Resolution offers so much learning and wisdom if allowed time to be experienced, felt, slowed down and investigated. Working through conflict with trained and compassionate leaders is life changing, and so so necessary given our current political and global climate crisis.” – Tina, past participant. 


The theory and methodology offered in this training are from Process Oriented Psychology or “processwork.”  Processwork is an awareness-based paradigm of personal and collective change.  Over the last 40 years, processwork facilitators have been invited to share these methods in many of the more conflict-intense parts of the world.  



“I LOVE David’s facilitation style. He’s kind, inclusive, direct, inventive and fun.” – Louise, past participant.
